We had a fabulous evening on Tuesday, 13 June for our annual Treasure Hunt; the weather was perfect for roaming around the village. We had 36 entrants and 33 handed-in sheets as one family took one away to complete at a later date.
(Click on any photo above to view as a slide show.)
We had a lot of high-scoring families with joint winners, so we had to decide with a tiebreaker: ‘Tell us your best joke!’.
The winning team will receive a £20 Waterstones voucher, and we hope they will be in Scalby on Fair Day to receive their award.
We also had a lucky dip which the children enjoyed; it was a bag for £1 with a bendy pencil, a rubber, and some sweets.
Below is the entrants’ scores, and our question sheet (with the answers). We have also shown below all the jokes we received.
